Stanley Cup Favorites for 2024

The current odds for the 2024 Stanley Cup see the Hurricanes and Panthers listed as co-favorites over the rest of the league. After the Cats and Canes, the likes of the Golden Knights, Bruins and Hurricanes have the best chance to hoist Lord Stanley. Here is a little more information on each of the favorites:

Florida Panthers

The Florida Panthers are a top contender in the 2024 Stanley Cup odds thanks to their stellar play and deep roster. Led by head coach Paul Maurice, the Panthers have been on a tear, sitting second in the Atlantic Division behind superb goaltending from Sergei Bobrovsky and offensive firepower from Sam Reinhart and Matthew Tkachuk.

Carolina Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes are right there, with the Panthers as one of the top favorites to win the Cup. Led by head coach Rod Brind’Amour, the Hurricanes have been a powerhouse all season, currently sitting second in the Metropolitan Division with 107 points. Carolina made some big moves at the trade deadline, acquiring offensive weapons like Jake Guentzel and Evgeny Kuznetsov to bolster an already deep roster.

Colorado Avalanche

The Colorado Avalanche have the best odds of any Western Conference team in the 2024 Stanley Cup odds. The Avs suffered a stunning Round 1 upset loss to Seattle Kraken in the 2023 NHL Playoffs but are only one year removed from their dominant Stanley Cup run in 2021-22. Colorado features one of the NHL’s most explosive players, Nathan MacKinnon, plus 2022 Norris Trophy winner Cale Makar.

Five Past Stanley Cup Winners

Year Team
2023 Vegas Golden Knights
2022 Colorado Avalanche
2021 Tampa Bay Lightning
2020 Tampa Bay Lightning
2019 St. Louis Blues

The Vegas Golden Knights won their first Stanley Cup in franchise history in 2023, becoming the fastest expansion team to win the NHL Championship. It only took six seasons for VGK to win the Stanley Cup, although the Seattle Kraken now have three years to potentially beat the record.

Vegas joins the St. Louis Blues (2019) and the Washington Capitals (2018) as the only first-time Stanley Cup winners in the last decade.

Interestingly enough, the Golden Knights and Tampa Bay Lightning are the only two teams since 2008 to lose in a Stanley Cup Final and go on to win a Cup. The Bolts lost to the Blackhawks in 2015 and went on to win in 2020 & 2021, while the Knights lost to the Capitals in 2018 and went on to win in 2023.

The other teams to lose in the finals in that span include: Detroit, Philadelphia, Vancouver, New Jersey, Boston, NY Rangers, San Jose Nashville, Vegas, Boston, Dallas, Montreal and Florida.

NHL Stats for Teams Searching for Their First Stanley Cup

Team Years in the NHL Cup Final Appearances Closest They’ve Come
Vancouver Canucks 53 3 Game 7 Cup Final losses in both 2011 and 1994. No one in Vancouver will ever forget LaFayette’s post or the ensuing riots.
Buffalo Sabres 53 2 Game 6 in 1999. Losing in overtime, no thanks to Brett Hull’s foot in the crease.
San Jose Sharks 32 1 Game 6 in 2016. They’ve never been able to shed their label as chokers.
Nashville Predators 25 1 Game 6 in 2017. Nashville fans still rue the bad call on Sissons’ go-ahead goal.
Ottawa Senators 31 1 Game 5 in 2007. A heartbreaking series for Ottawa that culminated in the infamous Emery-Phillips mixup.
Florida Panthers 30 2 Swept by Colorado in 1996, despite the year of the rat.
Arizona Coyotes 27 0 Lost in 5 games to the LA Kings in 2012. Dustin Brown isn’t admired by Glendale faithful.
Winnipeg Jets 29 0 Defeated by the Golden Knights in 5 games in 2018. Canada’s best hope was no match for Ryan Reaves’ heroics.
Minnesota Wild 23 0 Swept in the 2003 Conference Finals. Despite a disappointing playoff history, they did end Patrick Roy’s career in spectacular fashion.
Columbus Blue Jackets 23 0 The Jackets have only won one playoff series in their history, but what a series it was, upsetting the top-seeded Lightning in 2019.

The Vancouver Canucks and the Buffalo Sabres are the two longest-tenured NHL teams without a Stanley Cup. The good news for Vancouver fans is the team is trending upward and is one of the top Western contenders for the 2024 Stanley Cup. Unfortunately for Sabres fans, however, the team’s postseason drought will reach 13 years in 2023-2024.

Canadian Stanley Cup Winners

Team Stanley Cups Finals Appearances Last Championship Last Finals Appearance
Montreal Canadiens 24 34 1993 2021
Toronto Maple Leafs 13 21 1967 1967
Edmonton Oilers 5 7 1990 2006
Calgary Flames 1 3 1989 2004
Vancouver Canucks 0 3 N/A 2011
Ottawa Senators 0 1 N/A 2007
Winnipeg Jets 0 0 N/A N/A

No Canadian won the Stanley Cup in 2023, extending Canada’s Stanley Cup drought to 30 years. Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs did finally win a playoff round, however, inspiring some future hope for one of the most beloved Canadian teams. Canada sports betting sites continue to offer odds for all Canadian NHL teams.

The run of futility for Canadian teams, which dates back to 1993, is reaching incredible heights. During that time, Canadian teams have comprised a minimum of 21.88% of the NHL (at least 7 out of 32 teams). For the vast majority of that span, Canadian teams have actually made-up a greater percentage of the league (23.33% of the NHL from 2000 until Vegas joined in 2017).

A total of 28 Stanley Cups have been awarded since Montreal won in 1993. If you think of the NHL as rolling a 30-sided die, on which seven sides are Canadian teams, the chances of it landing on non-Canadian teams 28 straight times is 0.236%.

Canadian teams have reached the Stanley Cup finals six times since 1993 (Vancouver, 1994; Calgary, 2004; Edmonton, 2006; Ottawa, 2007; Vancouver, 2011; Montreal, 2021). Even if we say the Canadian teams – which were largely underdogs in those series – only had a 40% chance of winning the finals, on average, there was still only a 4.67% chance that they would go 0-for-6.
